Madison, P streets restricted near Highway 58 Thursday, Sunday

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Motorists are advised to anticipate nighttime lane closures on P Street and Cottonwood Road on Thursday and on Madison Street on Sunday.

The lane closures will occur in the vicinity of the State Route 58 crossings.

The lane closures are necessary to install concrete barrier rail along these streets in advance of widening the corresponding State Route 58 bridges.

This work will take place between the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night.

One lane will remain open to allow traffic to cross through the work zone, but flagging personnel will be conducting traffic control and motorists should be prepared to stop for up to 10 minutes.

Motorists are reminded to obey flagging personnel and construction signs and to pay close attention to construction vehicles and personnel while driving through these areas.

The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public. For additional information on the State Route 58 Gap Closure Project, please visit our website at
